I still breast feed my 16 month old son. I've never done it in public for many reasons. One is that I'm modest. The main one is that most public places just don't have a comfortable space. I prefer an arm chair and use the boppy pillow most of the time. It's just to hard to find the right place when we're not at home. Another reason I don't BF in public is because when he was small we mostly stayed at home anyway. When I brought him out to run errands we would do it right after he ate. He has always gone back and fourth from bottle to breast with no problem. I know all babies arent' like that, but maybe you'll luck out.

They sell nursing tank tops that you can where. They don't show you're whole boob and that is one way to be more discreet, then put a blanket over the baby and over your shoulders. Or hooter hiders. It's like an apron you put on that covers your chest so you can nurse and not be seen. =) If you are really worried about it you can pump and use a bottle.
